A video that went viral shows a teacher hosting a twerk party with girls at a high school and paying the students.
The video was shared on Snapchat, and was hosted during chemistry class Leland High, Mississippi.
A concerned parent, Erica Haney told reporters:
“I was angry…I was disappointed…I was highly concerned and I was very disturbed.”
The teacher, known as Mr. Miller, paid each student $25 dollars after the contest.
The Delta News held an interview with the concerned parents Erica Haney and Timothy Haney:
The Haneys said their daughter wasn’t in the video, but they reached out because this is the environment they’re in and they care for the other students.
They said when they reached out the school pushed them off two weeks, and tried to keep the matter private.
The Delta News reached out to the school, and superintendent Jessie King told them:
This was a personnel issue and was handled according to the Mississippi code of ethics..
They also reached to the district and principal and were told the that the Mr. Miller has been terminated.
